Question Which Model is what?

OK, no previous thread that I can find for this, and with all the newbies, and even some of us ancient persons I would like to have a thread of definitions of which model does what with which trigger and caliber.

Yes I know some of this can be gotten from the sig site, but not the discontinued and older models.

example

Is a P228 the same as a M11?? and if not WHY, WHAT, Who?

OR what is the difference between a P225 and P225-1? What is a P225, isn't that same as the P239?

What the HE$$ is a P6?

Why did browning make something that was a sig, don't even remember what it was? or what model??

MK25, Isn't that just a P226 with a logo (Anchor) on it?, or is it different than a regular P226?

What is it with the rifles, MCX, MPX, 516, 516 Carbon, 556?? Aren't these all basically the same thing, they all shoot 5.56 don't they??

I am so confused, I feel really dumb right now

DirtDiver69, yes it is hard to keep up with the trends, that's why I have a window with Sig's website in it, to try and help me differentiate a lot of these models when someone has a problem.

Agreed same here, but what about the not on the website stuff.

OK Willard

It's the military/government version of the commercial P225, and was the initial development. The designed it for Military trials, and then commercialized it for civilian sales.
Like the M11 was developed from the P228, to meet military requirements for a 9mm more compact with a smaller grip circumference. In that case, the P228 came first.
The Mk25, was developed out of the P226, with improvements desired by the Navy's Seals.

Thank you

Now some of this is starting to make some sense.

Check out Wikipedia on Sig Sauer, quite informative on some of the different models, and "Who" uses them.

The original P225 was derivative of the P6, which, as Willard noted, was developed for military/police deployment. The P225 was discontinued by Sig in the late 90s/early '00s. The P225-1 was a "reintroduction" undertaken by Sig last year, but some things carried over, while others did not. For example, the mags from the original P225 and the 225-1 are not interchangeable. The original P225 had a squared-off trigger guard, whereas the 225-1 does not.
The 239 was developed, I believe, for police/military use in situations when an even smaller pistol than a P225 (or P6) was called for (but others may point out otherwise).

Oh and the browning hi power is what Sig Sauer based their pistols on ... The p220 iirc or maybe the p210.

Someone in the know will chime in more. I want a browning because of this though.

First gun I ever bought, almost 50 years old, still going strong. I can see the similarities. Of course the Browning is the basis for most modern gun design, barrel lockup, etc.

Good shooter, all steel, my only 9mm, paid I think about $105 for it

In 1977 Browning made a deal with Sig Sauer to import the Sig p220 under the Browning name for a couple of years.
After that, Sig decided to import the p220s themselves.

You can find a reference to that in the 1st chapter of the book, 'Gun Digest Book of Sig Sauer', by Massad Ayoob.
